The Wilson Center's History and Public Policy Program is pleased to announce the publication of an Occasional Paper, “A 21st  Century Vision for U.S. Global Media,” by Wilson Center Senior Scholar A. Ross Johnson and R. Eugene Parta. The authors apply lessons from successful U.S. international broadcasting during the Cold War to today’s  transformed geopolitical, media, and technological world. They suggest a restatement of mission and corresponding organizational changes to ensure that international broadcasting remains an effective instrument of U.S. soft power – one supporting freedom and democracy abroad in the national interest.
